Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
SAMSUNG Galaxy Watch 3 has a lot working in its favor. It’s one of the best-looking smartwatchs, with a bright, circular AMOLED display, new fitness aids like a running coach feature and the option to sync workouts from your TV to your wrist, better sleep tracking than earlier models and advanced health tools like an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) app to monitor your vitals. But for now, it seems like there’s a lot of unfinished business. By trying to take on so much, the Galaxy Watch 3 misses the mark on everything that could make it stand out from other smartwatches, because its most impressive won’t be available at launch.
It’s been two years since the original Galaxy Watch came out, and it’s clear Samsung has been working on improving the quality of its flagship watch since then. This is a marked improvement over the original watch, and even a step above the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
The haptics are quite good for a smartwatch — far better than anything I’ve seen from Fossil or Fitbit. The rotating bezel is noticeably smaller than the original, though it’s not more difficult to use. I think the bezel on the original watch was a bit too chunky.
I’m using the 45mm stainless steel model in Mystic Black. The hardware feels good. The buttons are clicky, and I quite like the leather strap Samsung included in the box.
I’m looking forward to testing the new health and fitness features. Only a leather strap is included in the box, though, and I am definitely not going to run with a leather strap. I’ll have to swap it out with a silicone one for testing.
